Release notes recent (and planned) changes

Hi there,

As many of you have noticed, the Release Notes are being heavily edited, when
I asked translators to update it was at revision 1.120 and now it is at
revision 1.155.

First of all, please understand that this is inevitable and that more updates
will be forthcoming (you just have to grep for TODO and FIXME in the release
notes to see it coming).  I'm going to stand back for a few days (until this
Friday) to allow translators to catch up with changes, if possible. 

Do not translate sections with prominent FIXMEs or TODOs, as they
are subject to deep changes (or rewrites). Specifically, the following
sections should be left untranslated (if you have not started yet with those)
for the time being:
  * The new section System improvements (tag "improves_in_etch"), as it is
    still in draft form
  * The section "Upgrading from a 2.6 kernel", as it will see many changes (I
    want to test this ugprade myself before getting it documented)

The current status of translations for the Release Notes is:

- updated recently: ca, cs, de, fr, it, ja, pt, ru, sv, vi
- very out of date: da, es, fi, ko, nl, pt_BR, ro, zh_CN, zh_TW

I would suggest the language teams that are 'very ouf of date' to try to
catch up now as it will be probably be more difficult as times goes by and
more and more changes are introduced in the document.

Thanks for your patience,
